Beyonce isn't always renowned for her subtlety - but the pop star has set tongues wagging after cryptically changing her lyrics during a live performance.

Queen Bey was performing her emotional ballad Resentment during a live show in Ohio, when a slight change to her own lyrics seemed to validate recent rumours about the musician's marriage.

Her husband, hip hop mogul Jay Z, has been the subject of cheating rumours over the last couple of months, which emerged after Beyonce's younger sister Solange attacked the rapper in a hotel lift in May.

Beyonce took to the stage in a white, wedding-inspired gown. She started performing the track from her 2006 album B'Day, adjusting the lyrics to seemingly relate to her current woes.

"Been ridin' with you for six years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me" became "Been ridin' with you for 12 years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she's had half of me. She ain't even half of me. That bitch will never be."

Beyonce and Jay Z reportedly started dating in 2002 - 12 years ago.

The crowd roared in recognition at the change, apparently aware of what was being referenced. 

She also changed one more line:

"I'll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn't do it for you like your mistress could" became "I'll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn't do it for you like that wack bitch could."

The gesture remains speculation for now - but it has certainly fuelled the flames of disharmony in music's biggest marriage.
